University of Western Australia Machinima Awards 2018

Hey, y'all,

I logged into SL this morning to an announcement of an upcoming event and I went there.

You may or may not know that the ISTE Virtual Environments Network meets most every 3rd Tuesday of most every month to view and share machinima. What is that? It's film made from video in online games or virtual worlds. This hour was the culmination of a year of competition and the organizers were clearly dedicated to the art of machinima.

I had to go. Now I have my work cut out for me (in spare time, certainly not in my work day as middle school Technology Teacher). I want to view as many of the winners as I can. I've browsed around a bit, and what I've glimpsed is nothing short of stellar. I have a link for ya.

The videos were originally archived for viewing at the site linked below, but it appears to have been taken down. I'm not sure why, but I can speculate: Second Life has been known to be a bit picky about websites using the moniker "SL" for any part…

Enjoying some virtual down time when I have real down time. :)
